Every second counts in emergency response situations, and arriving at the right location swiftly can make all the difference. But what happens when the destination is less than clear?
Imagine a call to a cardiac arrest. The address is a terraced residential property. As the ambulance turns onto the road, the driver slows down significantly to start trying to find the right address.
Except not all houses have visible numbers, and those that do aren’t easily visible from the road – especially at night. The clock is ticking, and every moment spent trying to translate a pin on a map to the real world location adds to the patient’s risk.
Introducing Blue Light Maps Street View
To address these issues, we’ve added a groundbreaking feature – Google Street View. Our integration of Google Street View provides a visual representation of the destination as a first responder arrives on scene.
Imagine our cardiac arrest scenario again. Thanks to Street View, responders can now visualise the destination before they arrive. They see the entrance, door colour, any relevant landmarks, and can make a beeline to the patient. This not only saves time but also reduces the stress of navigating in high-pressure situations.
A Safer, More Efficient Response
Street View is just one example of how our technology can help responders provide a better service to the public. Whether it’s reducing response times with Blue Light Routing or integrating key datasets, we’re focused on improving emergency response, one innovative feature at a time.
